So the Keto diet, on an international scale is gaining strength, especially with athletes. In restaurants in Europe are getting used to customers asking for a burger with lettuce only, no bun.
Kudos to you 2cubs.
You finding resources online? My favs are Keto connect and Keto caveman.
I love me some Fat Head Pizza! Having it tonight (just me if course).
Hate the Keto sticks. Seems like I it's a yo-yo.

Went to a restaurant chain named Houlahans, and they had a page full of gluten free dishes and offers many low carb/Keto dishes. I was in Keto heaven.

You'd be better off just staying home. Houlihans is $$ quality food with a $$$ price tag - solely because of the excessive Merikan sized portions.

I slipped up these past couple of weeks because we had cake for the kids' birthdays - and in our circle of friends and family it's a mixture of the entitlement of "let them eat cake" and "go big or go home" - and there were TWO full size cakes in our downstairs refrigerator.

Meanwhile, my wife is dogmatically sticking with weight watchers and counting points. That seems like way too much work though. I'm perfectly fine with just living on boneless chicken breasts wrapped in green leaf lettuce with a slice of tomato and some pickles for flavor. having all this "low calorie" (but high sugar or artificially sweetened) stuff lying around is a temptation I don't need.

I admit I also fell off the "no beer" wagon and overindulged - causing me to gain a couple of pounds back and have that bad achy feeling I get after overindulging. I really need to see a dietician.

Talking

I hear ya kwak.
Pippa just had a birthday. Big cake. Not even a taste for me. Effin sucks the big one.
BUT- every week I make a dessert "fat bomb" just for me. Enuff to last all week.
Either homemade chocolate bars (one big sheet pan) or snickerdoodle
fat bombs. Nobody else can touch them, unless I give it away. Cause that's all I get, while you're eating ice cream and sh%&t.

Of course I have more inspiration. With the implant and the diet I'm seeing a hell of an improvement, and don't want to go backward.

We've had a recent uptick in social gatherings lately and I swear I've put on a good 10 pounds in that time. I really need to get on some sort of exercise schedule, but hate running on treadmills and it has been so damned cold.

Yeah, I need to figure out something. The stepper machine I had broke (second one i've killed, but that's what happens when you buy cheap junk). So I've been on the lookout for something decent used in the classifieds/Craigslist/second hand store.

I don't mind treadmills or exercise bikes, or any of that. I can't run out on the roads anymore. Years of cross country track were hard on my knees and now pounding that pavement just kills.

It's ironic, as the weather warms that's when I generally put on the pounds... hockey during the winter does a good job of keeping the pounds down.

Hey Gamerdadofour and Gduck try going Keto. Your body will love you. Eliminate carbs and burn fats for energy use protein to build and restore muscles like it was meant too.
You eat meats. Yum
Fry foods. Sautéed foods. Great stuff. Mmmm.
Put down the chips and the pie and the cookies and the cake. You can make it keto- there's recipes.
You won't get Diabetes down the road.
That whole "fatty foods=cholesterol" is true. You drop lesser quality oils standard cooking oil and go for higher quality.
The wifey can do it too.
Check out Elanaspantry.com or Ketoconnect.com or Ketocaveman and see how easy it is.
Research it as well.
Tonite it's bacon wrapped salmon slathered in butter, mashed cauliflower, and Mediterranean style spinach, oh my!
I dropped 30 pounds. All of it spare tire. Now I am at ideal recommended weight for body type and height.

An interesting side note of going low carb higher fat is you can fast, too. I've been doing one day a week, ~36hrs water and clear non-caloric liquids only. (Coffee, tea etc.) It's not as bad as you'd imagine! I'm fitting into clothes I hadn't been in for years!

I've considered it, but the quirk with keto is you have to be able to keep your carb intake too low too consistently. Doing that would annoy the crap out of the rest of the family and I'm not making a separate dinner for just myself every night to make that work.
